With winter comes the season of all things roasted, including these delicious honey roasted carrots and parsnips.

Roast vegetables are a staple of winter-time veggie cuisine, so roast dinners should be perfect for vegetarians.

Unfortunately, most of the time the only veg-friendly parts of a roast dinner are the sides, and that’s especially disappointing if the sides are boring.

If you’re looking for honey roasted parsnips and carrots to pair with an awesome veggie main course like our Vegetarian Wellington, you’re in the right place.

Whether you’re more partial to roasted carrots, roasted parsnips or honey roasted vegetables in general, this recipe is sure to please.

You could also throw in any extra vegetables you have laying around.

If you’re looking at this roasted carrots and parsnips with honey recipe as a side dish for your Christmas dinner, you can find more options in our compilation of Vegan Christmas Dinner Recipes!

Passion for Pomegranate

You might think that pomegranates are a minor element to this recipe, and since it’s a honey roasted carrots and parsnips recipe, you would be right.

But the sweetness of the pomegranate also adds a delightful crunch and offsets the feta cheese.

It is the perfect addition to this dish and better yet pomegranates have important health benefits!

Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants which reduce inflammation, help to prevent cell damage and certain diseases. They’re also a good source of Vitamins C, E, and K, potassium and folate.

That’s a pretty good addition to your honey roasted vegetables, which already rock!

Put the roast in honey roasted carrots and parsnips

Roasting carrots and parsnips with honey isn’t too tough, since it’s a lot like making any other oven roasted vegetables. That being said, we want to make this is as easy for you as it can be.

The key difference in making here is the way you cut your vegetables.

How to cut your roasted vegetables

If you slice the carrots and parsnips into longer slices, they will take longer in the oven. We suggest staying on the longer end of the recommended time in the oven.

If you cut them into shorter or thinner slices, they will take less time to cook. The same goes for roasted baby carrots. We suggest checking on them a little sooner than the required 20 minutes.

As long as you get the timing right, and your carrots and parsnips are well coated in honey, it should all go smoothly. Check out the best way to roast your vegetables.

Once your carrots and parsnips are roasted, make sure you add those toppings!

Normally, we’re pretty easy going about the final touches of our dishes, since this blog is about EASY vegetarian and vegan food.

But these roasted carrots and parsnips are just so much better when you include the pecans, rosemary, pomegranate, and feta. (Plus it makes it look way fancier!)

So if you want these honey glazed carrots and parsnips to win over roast dinner fans (veggie or not), make sure you include all the toppings!
